Alex Eala now has four professional singles titles to her name. This is how much she has earned from each of her victories.
Over the last few years, Filipino ace Alex Eala has been making waves as an athlete and has been putting the Philippines on the global tennis map, winning major international tournaments. Among her biggest feats thus far in her career definitely has to be winning the 2022 US Open Girls’ Singles Tournament. And as Alex Eala is only 18 years old as of writing, there is surely more success yet to be earned.
Ever since she won her US Open Girls championship, however, the youngster has been putting more focus on her professional career. She has been competing in many pro tournaments, facing many strong opponents from all over the world. And, it has paid off, as she now has four professional titles to her name at a young age.
From her current number of professional singles titles (which is still growing), this is how much Alex Eala has earned in prize money so far.
W15 Manacor (2021)
Alex won her first-ever professional title in January 2021 when she was just about to turn 16 years old at the W15 Manacor tournament. Despite losing the first set to Yvonne Cavalle-Reimers, who was playing on home court, Eala came back with a vengeance, taking the next two sets, 6-1, 6-2.
She entered the tournament as the youngest player and as the lowest seed, but despite this, she won the title over Cavalle-Reimers, 13 years her senior.
In 2021, winners of W15 ITF tournaments took home $2,352 from the prize pot.
W25 Chiang Rai (2022)
Although Alex spent the remainder of 2021 without a title, she came back in 2022 winning the W25 Chiang Rai tournament, facing higher levels of competition.
Similar to her maiden professional victory, Eala once again defeated a home player. Facing Luksika Kumkhum, the Filipino wasted no time and swept the finals match, 6-4, 6-2 to win the W25 tournament in Thailand.
With this victory, she earned a bigger prize than her first — $3,935.
W25 Yecla (2023)
Her third professional title would come a year later, again playing in a W25 in Spain.
Coming into the tournament as the second seed, the young Filipino was expected to perform well. And facing high expectations, she delivered. Going up against Swiss bet Valentina Ryser, Eala took the crown after two sets, winning 6-3, 7-5.
Winning her third professional victory, she bagged another $3,935.
W25 Roehampton (2023)
Most recently, Alex won her second title for 2023 and her fourth overall in the W25 tournament in Roehampton, United Kingdom.
The US Open Juniors Champion showed her dominance as a professional in the final match where she went up against Australian bet and second-seed Arina Rodionova and claimed the title in two sets. Opening both sets with a significant 3-0 lead, Eala, who came in as the sixth seed, already looked poised to rule Roehampton — which she did.
With another victory in the books, Eala is set to take home $3,935 to add to her overall earnings.
In total, from her four singles professional titles so far, she has accumulated $14,157 (around PHP 805,000). And, this does not even account for the prize money she wins even when she doesn’t reach the finals. Not bad for the 18-year-old Filipino.
